NFL Draft 2018 Guide: Player profiles by position

Opinion time: With the NFL Combine in full swing, who will be the No. 1 pick in the draft?

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Barkley is "firmly in the Browns' plans at No. 1".

There will be all sorts of different options - including trading up for a QB - but if we learned anything Friday it's that if Vikings decide to go with their most obvious need at 30, it appears highly likely a good O-line prospect will be available.

Barkley's combine blew each of theirs out of the water.

Gesicki turned heads at the NFL Combine on Saturday with a 129-inch broad jump along with a 4.54 in the 40-yard dash, both of which were tops among tight ends. Barkley is set to follow in their footsteps, and may hit a milestone that a running back hasn't reach in over 20 years. To put that number in perspective, Browns left tackle Joe Thomas was only able to put up 28 reps at the 2007 combine.

Barkley has proved himself to be an all-purpose back with the ability to run and catch out of the backfield.

Barkley was expected to be a star in Indianapolis.

His quarterback, Baker Mayfield, defended Brown when he spoke to the media Friday.

With the running back class bundled up after Saquon Barkley, Jones' injury means teams will have to wait until USC's Pro Day to really see what he can do. When was the last time you could make a legitimate case for a running back being the No. 1 overall pick in the draft?

Of course Chubb put up some impressive numbers of his own at the combine, and most scouts agree he is the best defensive playmaker in the draft, particularly given the needs that the Colts have in their front seven.

Barkley isn't in play for the Lions, barring the kind of blockbuster trade that Quinn has avoided in his first two drafts. Cleveland is 2 years removed from the Johnny Manziel disaster and although that decision was 2 general managers ago, that draft hovers over the franchise like a dark cloud.

There have been reports already this offseason that the Browns are not smitten by any of the quarterbacks in this year's draft in particular, so passing on taking one at that top overall spot is not out of the question. "They have a lot of young talent, a new offensive coordinator", he said, indicating that he is informed about the current state of teams. They would bring out the best in each other and accelerate each other's development by having a talented player to grow with. They only won one game, but they were in a lot of games. They have 12 picks in all, six of the first 65, four of the first 35, and two of the top four.
